Memories are a precious thing, and heartbreaking to lose. Those who are living with Alzheimer’s understand this more than most.
“A lot of good memories can be associated with a car, especially classics,” says Matt Van Gelder, CEO of Executive Auto Shippers. That’s why EAS decided to host a fundraiser for the Alzheimer’s Association in the form of a car show. “We felt a car show was a very relatable way for us to raise funds and awareness for the Alzheimer’s Association,” Van Gelder commented.
The event is considerately called Drive Down Memory Lane. It will be held Sunday, September 18th at Principal Park in Des Moines, Iowa. Van Gelder mentioned that besides a few of the local food trucks, the other vendors will include family activities, chair massages, and various goods. The event is free to the public and will run from 12 pm to 4 pm. People interested in showing their vehicle can contact the event organizer, Kristi Kenyon, at email@example.com.
All proceeds will be donated to the Greater Iowa Chapter of the Alzheimer’s Association. “We aren’t looking to make a profit but simply help a great organization in the pursuit of a cure for this devastating disease,” Van Gelder stated, “with the help of our vendors and amazing sponsors like, MyKlassic.com, we’re hoping to raise awareness while also putting on a really great show for both spectators and participants.”
“The Alzheimer’s Association is excited to be working with Executive Auto Shippers,” expressed Danielle Etter, Development and Communications Specialist with the Alzheimer’s Association – Greater Iowa Chapter, “We are extremely grateful for local businesses like Executive who look for creative ways to support the Alzheimer’s Association.”
